I enjoy the beach from the comfort of a room, I confess that the sand between
my toes is not always a pleasant experience. However, the steady rhythm of the
waves coming and going always fills me with positive feelings, the kind of
permanence that is very comforting to me.
As I write these words, I am very aware of the swiftness of a person’s life here on
earth, even if they make it to 100. Many of my dear friends have lost parents
or other elderly friends and at this moment, I have someone close to me who is
very near transitioning. I feel a mix of emotions, surprising me most of all
because I thought I had already prepared myself sufficiently for this passing.
A lump in my throat reminds me that each day is a blessing and one which I must
do my very best to fill with positive actions and thoughts.
